This paper presents a molecular simulation study of the density and surface tension of a water film for a range of temperatures from 300K to 600K. The extended simple point charge (SPC/E) [1] interaction potential for water is used with full Ewald summation. The PPPM method, which automatically include untrucated the long-range terms, is applied instead of using the tail correction. The normal and tangential components of the pressure tensor were calculated and are presented at 352K. Results show that the calculated density and surface tension of water fit well with experimental data for temperatures less than 500K.
